Salt Of The Earth
Have you every noticed when you are around other people and start talking directly about Jesus Christ how people will start to be silent? It is strange, you can even do it in Church and it seems people just have other things to talk about. I don't know why, but to me, talking about Jesus Christ is the best topic. Acting like Him is even better. Meeting Him and knowing Him is the best!
I was reading the below devotional from Radio Bible Class this morning and really like what it was sayin:
This is exactly what Jesus had in mind when He said, "You are the light of the world" (Matt. 5:14). It’s a powerful word picture of the impact of contrast. There should be a recognizable difference between the integrity of Christians and the prevailing darkness of our world.
"It’s not about making speeches for Jesus; it’s about people observing us. Even though they may not want to hear about Jesus, you can be sure they’re watching to see if He makes a difference in our lives. When Jesus said, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works" (v.16), He was saying that before we can speak up we have to show up. Our capacity to shine for Jesus is measured by our good works, which reveal His compelling reality in our lives.
Let's turn on the lights. "
Quoted From "Turn On The Lights"
Salt and Light
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:13-16
